BP Toxic Soup - It's Whats For Dinner

In case you missed it, ABC went underwater with Cousteau Jr, to document the results of the toxins that BP dumped into the water. While it may be breaking up the oil, now these particles will remain in the ocean for an unknown length of time, harming marine life and people who consume the fish that were exposed to the toxins. BP's actions cannot be reversed, and the harm that has been caused by these toxins may not be known for a very long time.

Please watch this video and pass it along.

The divers wore special Hazmat suits (hazard materials), and still needed to be hosed down after surfacing, to remove the contaminants from the suits. So, how safe is it really?

The ocean current naturally flows up the eastern coast. Will it contaminate everything in it's path? Is it safe to swim in the ocean this summer in only a bathing suit? Or do swimmers need Hazmat suits like these divers?

While the ocean is vast, what will be the concentration of the toxins as it spreads across the planet?

Until these questions are answered by qualified scientists, I would say to think twice before eating fish for dinner, and definitely don't go swimming afterwards.

The 75% Tax Will Eat Us Alive

The phrase "tax freedom day" sounds like an oxymoron. To me, if there were any truth to it, unless it is January 1st of every year, there is no such thing as "tax freedom". OK, maybe January 31st to pay for the military and our national defense, but that is where I draw the line.

Everything else the government takes from us and spends is unconstitutional. I can't find one sentence where it says that I have to support and pay for someone else's cost of living. But this is what is happening with no end in sight.

In fact, things are getting out of control too. The government is like a drug addict, taking more and more from society to support it's habit and get it's drug fix. Eventually, the people are going to be tapped out. They are going to run out of people to rob.

The below link is from the tax foundation website, in which they report "tax freedom day". This is the number of days you spend working, to support our drug addict-like government. Of course, it isn't exact because they base it on a 365 day year and they count weekends. So if you work a 5 day work week, then "tax freedom day" is actually later in the year. I didn't recalculate what date this would be because it would be too depressing. To get an idea though, you can refer to the chart for your own state.
"Despite all these tax reductions, Americans will pay more taxes in 2010 than they will spend on food, clothing and shelter combined."

"Tax Freedom Day does not count the deficit even though deficits must eventually be financed. Since 1948, when Tax Freedom Day was first calculated, the difference between what governments are spending and what they're collecting has never been as great as during 2009 and 2010. If Americans were required to pay for all government spending this year, including the $1.3 trillion federal budget deficit, they would be working until May 17 before they had earned enough to pay their taxes—an additional 38 days of work. This May 17 date for a deficit-inclusive measure is the second latest since World War II. Only in 2009 was it later, when an unprecedented budget deficit of close to $1.5 trillion produced a deficit-inclusive date of May 21, fully 43 days later than Tax Freedom Day."

"Tax Freedom Day answers the basic question, 'What price is the nation paying for government?' An official government figure for total tax collections is divided by the nation's total income. The answer this year is that taxes will amount to 26.89 percent of our income, and the stretch of 99 days from January 1 to April 9 is 26.89 percent of the year. Income and tax data are then parsed out to the states, yielding 50 state-specific Tax Freedom Days."

We should all congratulate Obama the Superzero for having such high unprecedented deficits and achieving the latest tax freedom day since his Superzero role model FDR. And let's not forget "kudos" to making us spend more money on taxes than everything else, BEFORE we even start to pay off the deficit. I am sure you can all hardly wait before forfeiting more of your income over to the drug dealer, as he takes your money and gives it to someone else.

Despite what the likes of Soros and the other statists proclaim, the productive section of the economy, otherwise known as the private sector is shrinking, as the government grows. As you pay more of your money to the government, the more you pay, the more they take.
The trend is not sustainable, says University of Michigan economist Donald Grimes. Reason: The federal government depends on private wages to generate income taxes to pay for its ever-more-expensive programs. Government-generated income is taxed at lower rates or not at all, he says. "This is really important," Grimes says.

Now that the sloths of government are getting their fill, they can sit around sleeping all day while you work to feed them. But as government grows, there are more and more sloths, and less worker bees.

So what is Obama the Superzero's decree from the Ratcave? Well, to tax the people more of course.
"If President Obama repeals the Bush tax cuts and imposes a 20 percent value added tax, or VAT, on the U.S., Americans may be facing tax rates where more than half of everything earned is confiscated by the federal government in the form of income taxes."

"Add Social Security taxes and the tax burden quickly advances to more than 60 percent. Adding state property and income taxes to the burden, the amount government confiscates could be in the 75 percent range before Americans have a chance to vote Obama out of office in 2012, are Americans willing to be taxed 75 percent of every dollar earned?"

"In a five-day work week, will Americans be willing to work four days for the government?"

So this will continue until you have the "privilege" to pay approximately 75% of your pay to the government, and the government "allows" you to keep one day of your pay. How "generous". Another synonym for that would be communist or oppressed. But why mince words when we have Obama the Marxist in the White House.

Make no mistake. The 75% tax will eat us alive. When that happens, who will continue to feed the sloths? Will the sloths die off? No. The sloths will continue their feeding frenzy, despite gradually killing off it's prey, the poor worker bee. And if you thought you weren't being robbed enough with all of this, the statists have yet another trick up their sleeve, just to make sure you don't survive.

This CLASS(less) Act starts in 2011, when the government robs the people for this tax, and continues to do so for five years before anyone even can be considered eligible. In other words, the government takes your money and supposedly keeps it, before "giving you" any service. Would you pay for a dinner now that you may with permission be able to eat five years from now?
"Obamacare is a socialist law designed to take money from some Americans and use it to benefit others. The health care bill signed into law by President Obama is full of hidden time bombs. One costly provision buried in the lengthy reconciliation bill at the last minute has taxpayers covering long-term at-home care for the elderly. Through the so-called Community Living Assistance Services and Support Act (CLASS Act), Americans will find between $150 and $250 taken out of their paychecks each month to cover this program nobody knew about."

Not only is this "CLASS(less) Act" a ponzi scheme, along with social security, medicare, and Obamacare, but just like those programs, people who don't work don't pay anything, but continue to live free off of the rest of society.

Exactly what does all of this do for the average working American? This CLASS(less) Act is once more nail in the coffin of a free America to create a classless society, under a marxist oppressed regime. It makes people poorer, while the lazy, unproductive masses continue to sit on their duffs and get paid to do nothing.

It is all yet another redistribution of wealth scheme. Now it is time to mince words. The elections in November should be re-phrased as hunting season for sloths. May the best worker bees swarm the hive and win, and the devoured sloths become the stories of myths and legends around campfires in a future free America.

Advisory: Health Dangers of BP Oil Spill Dispersants in the Gulf

I received the below information regarding the health risks to the toxins used by BP which will be soon flowing up the east coast in the current. The information is for your decision about your own health.

You should not eat anything from salt water. Farm raised and fresh water fish are fine. Do not swim in the sea until the concentration of this toxin is known since it is a skin irritant and can be absorbed by contact.

According to the MSDS data, corexit 9500 is highly toxic. Marine life ingests it, which will ultimately kill them off. If the marine life is caught for food, whoever eats that fish, oyster, etc will be ingesting the corexit 9500 and will suffer the effects. Those effects being damage to red blood cells, kidneys, liver, and shut-down of organs (which can kill you).

Update - Oil Spill Dispersants
On May 4, 2010 the Materials Safety Data Sheets for the two dispersants that we had heard were being used on the BP Deepwater Horizon disaster were posted to the official website.

The two products are Corexit 9500 (as previously reported) and also Corexit EC9527A

Corexit 9500 MSDS
Corexit EC9527A MSDS

The toxicity of Corexit EC9527A is quite high, here is an extract from the Corexit EC9527A Materials Safety Data Sheet:


0 = Insignificant 1 = Slight 2 = Moderate 3 = High 4 = Extreme

Our hazard evaluation has identified the following chemical substance (s) as hazardous. Consult Section 15 for the nature of the hazard(s).

Hazardous Substance(s) CAS NO % (w/w)
2-Butoxyethanol 111-76-2 30.0- 60.0
Organic sulfonic acid salt Proprietary 10.0- 30.0
Propylene Glycol 57-55-6 1.0- 5.0

Eye and skin irritant. Repeated or excessive exposure to butoxyethanol may cause injury to red blood cells, (hemolysis), kidney or the liver. Harmful by inhalation, in contact with skin and if swallowed.
Do not get in eyes, on skin, on clothing. Do not take internally. Use with adequate ventilation. Wear suitable protective clothing. Keep container tightly closed. Flush affected area with water. Keep away from heat. Keep away from sources of ignition -No smoking.
May evolve oxides of carbon (COx) under fire conditions.

Eye, Skin

Can cause moderate irritation. Harmful if absorbed through skin.

May be harmful if swallowed. May cause liver and kidney effects and/ or damage. There may be irritation to the gastro-intestinal tract.

Harmful by inhalation. Repeated or prolonged exposure may irritate the respiratory tract.

Excessive exposure may cause central nervous system effects, nausea, vomiting, anesthetic or narcotic effects.
Repeated or excessive exposure to butoxyethanol may cause injury to red blood cells (hemolysis), kidney or the liver.

Skin contact may aggravate an existing dermatitis condition.

Contains ethylene glycol monobutyl ether (butoxyethanol). Prolonged and/or repeated exposure through inhalation or extensive skin contact with EGBE may result in damage to the blood and kidneys.The Unified Command reported that as of May 6, 2010 Modular Aerial Spray System (MASS) aircraft have flown numerous dispersant missions- dispensing the same dispersant chemical being used by BP and the federal responders. These systems are capable of covering up to 250 acres per flight.

Obama - In Danger All the Way to Kalamazoo

It seems the HR department at the White House might consider writing up a job description for this president. While many presidents have spoken at various functions, Obama seems more focused on his PR tour promoting his narcissistic self-admiration than actually acting on his real responsibilities of the presidency.

North Korea is about to launch world war three with South Korea. Iran is close to having nuclear weapons and looking to erase Israel and most of the non-muslim world from the map. Russia is engaging in activities that look like they want to once again be a feared power and bring back more than the cold war. Greece, Spain, and Portugal economies are collapsing under their own weight along with the Euro from the socialist spending for decades. The US is in two wars, has severe national security threats, and is also on the verge of an economic collapse with out of control spending and unemployment at 22%.

The DHS and Obama attacked Arizona for looking to secure their border with Mexico. Illegal aliens that are terrorists are crossing over the border in droves.

The list of dire problems facing the US today are endless, and yet what does the president do? The president is spending time to speak at some high school in Kalamazoo.

Not only is Obama going to speak at the high school, but it seems that the high school students are getting more screening and background checks than those who pose a real threat to the nation.

Obama shook hands with Chavez and Ahmadinejad. Where was the screening for those dangerous men? Does Obama feel safer amongst these dangerous men, these dictators, these leaders of oppressive regimes, those of his own kind?

And what about each of the eight guests that these students will have at their graduation? Will they also undergo a security clearance check by the secret service?

Does Obama feel that the citizens of the nation for which he is supposed to represent and protect are more of a threat to him than our real enemies?

If it were reversed, and Obama were screened by the secret service, I bet they wouldn't even clear him to meet with these citizens.

Rhetoric aside, actions speak louder than words and Obama's actions speak for themselves. He places the nation in danger every day with his actions. The nation is not safe with Obama as president.

The message in between the lines is startling. Obama is more concerned for his safety amongst the average citizen. That should tell us all something about who this man really is and it isn't comforting.

Gag Order to Silence Bloggers

The word "liberal" would imply freedom but it has been hijacked. The statists calling themselves "liberals" as if they believe in freedom is a outright contradiction. Every ideology they have and every action they take is just the opposite.

The statists are constantly creating bills with names that imply that they are good for the people, but they are also a contradiction.

Bills that come to mind are the GIVE act, which actually would inflict enslavement and servitude upon citizens by creating the civilian national army of Obama's dreams.

The Freedom of Choice Act (known as card check), is actually stealing freedom from voters to vote their choice anonymously without being subjected to intimidation, duress, or worse as is the case in oppressed regimes.

The Food Modernization Act sounds like it would be ensuring you get healthy foods, but it mandates pesticides in your food, severely restricts organic farming, and mandates genetically engineered seeds which will not germinate and are loaded with chemicals.

None of these bills are good for the people. Nor do they make us more free. But the statists give them good names to fool the masses.

Now the statists have a new one up their sleeve, namely the DISCLOSE act.
"We’ll be following all the liberty-grabbing provisions of the DISCLOSE Act as it moves through Congress, but in the meantime you need to know about the one provision that is a direct attack on bloggers."

This act seeks to deprive bloggers of their constitutional rights of free speech and free press. The bill's name is a contradiction that is absolutely ridiculous, as the word "disclose" is to supply information, not suppress it.

So why go after the lone bloggers of the world? Do we have that much impact in the virtual world, so as to pose a threat to the government? I certainly hope so, and if not, then we should strive to do so. Someone has to keep the government from morphing into an oppressive regime.

Bloggers, are the untamed beast of the virtual world that the government cannot control. So of course it makes sense that the government would want to make every attempt to control any flow of information and opinion that may contradict it's own propaganda.

Even if the government does not agree with what bloggers say, we have a right to say it.

If the pen is in fact mightier than the sword, then we pose a great threat indeed to the budding oppressive regime in the current administration. May the bloggers of the world impair the statists ability to grow beyond it's infancy. In fact, may the bloggers of the world cause the statist to self-abort their own mission, and may the truth set us free once again.

Govt Admits Many Illegal Aliens are Terrorists

The anti-American standing ovation in the House by these alleged Americans is traitorous. Instead of being eternally grateful to Arizona, the likes of Holder, Napolitano, Obama, and all the other traitors attacked Arizona. They ignore the fact that it was the federal government's failure to secure our borders that forced Arizona to take matters into it's own hands by exercising it's 10th amendment rights and acting in it's own best interest. Even worse, the federal government by it's own admission, is fully aware that many illegal aliens crossing our borders are terrorists.

This isn't just about amnesty for illegals to obtain more democratic voters looking for a handout. This is about sacrificing our nation and national security. For the sake of votes to maintain their political positions of power over hard working Americans, they are throwing America under the bus for their own self serving interests. It is an outright disgrace.

This article is a bit long, but it is well worth the read. Be sure to watch the embedded video as well.
"The U.S. Border Patrol calls them "Other Than Mexicans," or OTMs, and many are citizens of countries that are sponsors of terrorism."

"Based on U.S. Border Patrol statistics, there were 30,147 OTMs apprehended in fiscal year 2003; 44, 614 in fiscal year 2004; 165,178 in fiscal year 2005; and 108,025 in fiscal year 2006. Most were caught along the U.S. Southwest border."

"1.2 million illegal aliens were apprehended in 2005 alone"

"According to the 2006 congressional report, federal law-enforcement agencies estimate that only 10 to 30 percent of illegal aliens are actually caught – meaning an estimated 70 to 90 percent enter the U.S. undetected."

"the probability of an OTM terrorist crossing the border is 97.3 percent"

The list of "special interest countries" is frightening. These are not our friends. No one should be looking the other way and sacrificing the nation for votes.

It is chilling to analyze these statistics.

If there were 1.2 million illegal aliens caught in one year, and the government estimates that 70 to 90% are not caught, this would mean that 2.8 million to 10.8 million snuck through our borders. This is just one year, and the statistics that the government admits, which means that the numbers are probably much worse than this.

The government knowingly admits the high statistic of 97% of a terrorist crossing our borders. Why isn't this a red alert by the DHS instead of going after the tea partiers? Why aren't the traitors going after the DHS instead of attacking Arizona?

If 650 of the 1.2 million were terrorists, statistically, then for the 70 to 90% that snuck through, out of the 2.8 to 10.8 million there were an estimated 1517 to 5850 additional terrorists that were not caught. To me, even one is too many.

If this is known, and that Hezbolloh members have entered the US illegally, why isn't the federal government doing more? Why isn't Arizona's actions being applauded instead of crucified?

This also means that the "estimated 12 million" illegal aliens that are capturing the bleeding hearts of the leftists isn't even close to the actual number that have infiltrated the nation. The government statistics by their own admission, prove that these are not just poor people coming to America to work.

It is bad enough that the illegal aliens are receiving free housing, free food, free education, free health care, free welfare, taking jobs from Americans, committing crimes, etc. They are draining this country dry at the expense of taxpayers. But now we are allowing illegal aliens that are terrorists to run amok within our borders wreaking havoc and destruction?

Allowing illegal aliens carte blanche access across our borders is not the noble cause that the leftists try to portray. All of this is for the sake of votes. The cost to our nation is our national security and it is devastating. The traitors need to be held accountable for their crimes, before America pays the ultimate price and is no more.

Obama Aids Hamas and Hezbollah

Obama needs a reality check. He needs to be reminded that America elected him president and no other, he represents American citizens and no other, and that he took an oath to uphold the US Constitution and no other. The fact that his actions demonstrate him supporting our enemies is an outrage and an act of treason against America.

Hezbollah is recognized by the US as a terrorist organization. How can Obama support them and hope to "build them up"?
"United States President Barack Obama's administration is looking for ways to build up 'moderate elements' within the Lebanese Hezbollah guerrilla movement"
What exactly is a "moderate element" of a terrorist?

Just because these terrorists have infiltrated the Lebanese government does not mean that we should give them any recognition as a legitimate regime. Anyone even remotely connected to Hezbollah, directly or indirectly, should be rejected by the US. There is no middle ground here. There is no compromise.

Where is Obama's loyalty to the United States? These actions compromise our national security and endanger us as a nation.

There are countless actions by Obama in which he favors terrorists over Americans.

Just seven days after being sworn into office, Obama's priorities were not with America and his presidential duties, but to write an executive order taking care of another terrorist organization, Hamas.
Presidential Determination No. 2009-15 of January 27, 2009
Unexpected Urgent Refugee and Migration Needs Related To Gaza
Memorandum for the Secretary of State

"By the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, including section 2(c)(1) of the Migration and Refugee Assistance Act of 1962 (the ``Act''), as amended (22 U.S.C. 2601), I hereby determine, pursuant to section 2(c)(1) of the Act, that it is important to the national interest to furnish assistance under the Act in an amount not to exceed $20.3 million from the United States Emergency Refugee and Migration Assistance Fund for the purpose of meeting unexpected and urgent refugee and migration needs, including by contributions to international, governmental, and nongovernmental organizations and payment of administrative expenses of Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration of the Department of State, related to humanitarian needs of Palestinian refugees and conflict victims in Gaza."
This is outrageous. Not only are executive orders unconstitutional and an abuse of presidential power, but Obama uses it as one of his first orders of business as president to take action against Americans.

How can Obama declare it to be the "national interest"? National interest to what nation?

How can Obama grant refugee status to "Palestinians refugees and conflict victims in Gaza", namely Hamas? Isn't the goal to keep terrorists OUT of the US? Yet Obama rolls out the red carpet for them.

How can Obama set aside 20 million of taxpayer dollars for terrorists? Why was it a first order of business and a priority to give terrorists assistance? Why would he even want to give terrorists assistance?

Of course, these things are not reported by the MSM. They are accomplices to Obama's crimes. This is why Obama does not want a free press. It will impair his ability to destroy us from within.

These actions are treasonous and should be charged as such. But the rest of the government representatives are also his accomplices, and none of them have the spine to do what is right for the nation. They don't deserve the privilege of calling themselves an American. We should take the 20 million set aside in this order, and use it to prosecute them and send them to Gitmo.

POTUS Impairs Freedom of the Press

The founding fathers intended freedom of the press as a safeguard to keep we the people free, and promote democracy in the Republic. A government controlled press spews propaganda and results in oppression not freedom. Obama, however seems to think that a free press impairs a democracy.

The only thing that seems to be impaired is Obama's lack of tech savvy. While it is unfortunate that Obama's lack of tech savvy does not leave him unable to operate TOTUS, since when do computer game systems put pressure on a democracy?
"And with iPods and iPads; and Xboxes and PlayStations -- none of which I know how to work -- (laughter) -- information becomes a distraction, a diversion, a form of entertainment, rather than a tool of empowerment, rather than the means of emancipation. So all of this is not only putting pressure on you; it's putting new pressure on our country and on our democracy," he said.

Freedom of the press does not put pressure on the country and on our democracy. This is either the biggest lie ever told, or demonstrates that Obama has no conceptual understanding of the purpose of freedom of the press.

The real issue here is actually that Obama does not want the citizen to access the information, namely the truth when and if it is reported. The truth sets us free, and Obama as a statist, wants to control the information you receive so he can tell you what to think. If you only know what he tells you, then you will not be able to dispute what he says. You will be easily controlled by the statist.

Obama, the elitist, is also insulting the common citizen, by implying that we are not smart enough to disseminate the information available, analyze it, and assess it for ourselves. The statist thinks the state needs to be in control of you for your own good.

It is bad enough that the media is 99.9% distorted as they swoon under the spell of Obama the Superzero, but Obama seems intent on silencing that small percentage of journalists and bloggers that make an attempt to report the truth. If Obama really was well intentioned, he wouldn't feel threatened by this small percentage and would not be making an attempt to silence them. That speaks much louder than the journalists themselves.

DHS Seizure of Property

Nothing warms the statists heart, but if it did, it might be when they violate an American's constitutional rights. The statists have been working overtime now that Obama has taken office. If violating Constitutional rights were an Olympic sport, the statists would be going for gold.

The violation du jour is the fourth amendment addressing the unlawful seizures of property, which states:
"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."

Apparently the DHS has no regard for the fourth amendment.
"The Department of Homeland Security sees Morses Line as a weak link in the nation’s borders, attractive to terrorists trying to smuggle in lethal materials. The government is planning an estimated $8 million renovation here as part of a nationwide effort to secure border crossings."

"It intends to acquire 4.9 acres of border land on a dairy farm owned for three generations by the Rainville family. Last month, the Rainvilles learned that if they refuse to sell the land for $39,500, the government intends to seize it by eminent domain."

"The Rainvilles call this an unjustified land-grab by federal bullies."

Of course, the statists utilize our safety as a justification to violate our constitutional rights.

Does the DHS feel threatened by farmers? Perhaps, since the DHS declared the tea partiers as terrorists instead of going after the real terrorists that want to do us harm.

The Obama administration attacks Arizona for passing a law against illegal immigration in reaction to the federal government's failure to protect the borders, while terrorists and drug cartels sneak over the Mexican border every day.

Instead of really securing our borders where the real danger lies, the DHS takes the opportunity to violate a citizen's constitutional rights by choosing to attack a poor farmer from Vermont on the Canadian border growing hay to feed their cattle. The DHS resorts to seizure of property to achieve that goal. Will anyone sustain harm in the process? Perhaps, the DHS better watch out for those rebel cows sneaking over the border for foreign hay.

DC Marx the Spot Where America Walks the Plank

It is no secret that in the past 100 years, the statists have been slowly planning the demise of America as a free nation. It had to be slow and gradual, otherwise people might notice. Karl Marx must be dancing in his grave at their "accomplishments" and I wonder if those in DC are now stepping back to admire their "achievement".

If we take a step back, and review this excerpt of the ten planks from the Communist Manifesto, it is easy to see it in all it's horror.
"Our "elected representatives" have passed laws implementing these anti-freedom concepts. The communists have achieved a de facto FEDERAL SOCIALIST GOVERNMENT in America."

"In 1848 Karl Marx and Frederick Engels wrote a book outlining a political ideology, titled "The Communist Manifesto". Marxism's basic theme is that the proletariat (the "exploited" working class of a capitalistic society) will suffer from alienation and will rise up against the "bourgeoisie" (the middle class) and overthrow the system of "capitalism." After a brief period of rule by "the dictatorship of the proletariat" the classless society of communism would emerge. In his Manifesto Marx described the following ten steps as necessary steps to be taken to destroy a free enterprise society!! Notice how many of these conditions, foreign to the principles that America was founded upon, have now, in 1997, been realized by the concerted efforts of socialist activists? Remember, government interference in your daily life and business is intrusion and deprivation of our liberties!"

- First Plank: Abolition of property in land and the application of all rents of land to public purposes.
- Second Plank: A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.
- Third Plank: Abolition of all rights of inheritance.
- Fourth Plank: Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.
- Fifth Plank: Centralization of credit in the hands of the State, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly.
- Sixth Plank: Centralization of the means of communications and transportation in the hands of the State.
- Seventh Plank: Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the State, the bringing into cultivation of waste lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.
- Eighth Plank: Equal liability of all to labor. Establishment of industrial armies especially for agriculture.
- Ninth Plank: Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries, gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country, by a more equitable distribution of population over the country.
- Tenth Plank: Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children's factory labor in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production.

While the list may be short, it says a lot. The Obama administration has fast forwarded this process to tie up all loose ends and complete the final chapter making America a marxist regime. Although there are unlimited examples of this, here are a few short points on each plank.

The confiscation of property as well as the abolition of property and rights is clearly unconstitutional in it's basic true form. The IRS now has the right to levy and has seized property. Obamacare gives the IRS direct access to your bank account.

From my perspective, the seizure of your property is the same as the progressive tax.

The progressive income tax robs earners of the fruits of their labor. While the people may not be in physical shackles, it is actually the same. It economically enslaves the people to the state.

While the federal reserve did in fact centralize credit in the hands of the state, Obama's takeover of the banks completed that process and sealed the nail in that coffin.

The FCC regulates communications in violation of free speech. The Obama administration's agenda of net neutrality and control of the internet, will complete the circle of centralized communications and result in the government controlled propaganda media machines on par with communist Russia, China, North Korea, Nazi Germany, and other oppressive regimes.

The government takeover of the auto industries, along with the attacks on Wall Street and capitalism, is to control all industries by controlling the financial industry since it is the lifeblood of all industries. They will achieve the ultimate goal of making all production owned by the state.

The SEIU is the government's outstretched tentacles, constricting and choking all labor, to the point of enslavement and suffocation. The recent agenda to force all workers to be in a union will deprive employees of their freedom and make them property of the state. While Marx may perceive this as providing equality in labor, it is actually the exact opposite.

The Food Modernization Act is to control agriculture and the food supply. This, along with the FDA case in which the FDA declared citizens do not have the right to choose what food and drink they consume, is deprivation of a citizens right to life and making your body the property of the state.

The anti-homeschooling movement, the re-writing of history, and the government controlled curriculum with liberal agenda is to control children through "education" by brain washing them to make them cooperative as property of the state.

Obama's philosophy of the redistribution of wealth is in line with Marx's Communist Manifesto, and a stealth methodology of achieving his goal of a Marxist regime, along with his accomplices in DC. As each day passes, the pirates in the government are stealing our freedom from us and making America walk the plank to drown us. It is time for a mutiny.

The Govt is No Longer Pro-Choice

For decades, the statists have been repeating their mantra, ad nauseum, about pro-choice and their belief in a woman's "right to choose what to do with her body". The statists didn't believe in the right to life, as endowed by our Creator, and as set forth in the Constitution. Yet, all of a sudden, it seems that they are about to reverse course.

Truthfully, the statists have always disturbed me at their blatant support of the violation of the basic human right to life. To date, approximately 40 million lives have been prematurely snuffed out as a result of this distortion of the truth.

After spending decades supporting a policy that the statist does not have the right to tell you what to do with your body, they are now looking to control what you put into your body. Such hypocrites.

This case is particularly disturbing. The right to life does not come from the government or the FDA. The statist however, is now looking to take control over what you can and cannot put into your body.
"Attorneys for the federal government have argued in a lawsuit pending in federal court in Iowa that individuals have no 'fundamental right' to obtain what food they choose."

"The FDA essentially believes that nobody has the right to choose what to eat or drink,"

"You are only 'allowed' to eat or drink what the FDA gives you permission to. There is no inherent right or God-given right to consume any foods from nature without the FDA's consent."

In a past blog post discussion on the food modernization act, in summary, the government attacks the Amish, and is looking to not only control your food supply, but ensure you consume pesticides and genetically engineered food, as well as remove your access to natural seeds that will germinate and replace it with government engineered seeds that will not generate plants with seeds that can be used to grow your own food.

Now the statist who once proclaimed from the rooftops that you could do what you want with your body yet denied your right to life, is now looking to take possession of your life and your body. You will no longer have rights to your own body.

But they are not going to stop there. The statist now wants control of your children.
"States receiving federal grants provided for in the bill would be required to annually track the Body Mass Index of all children ages 2 through 18. The grant-receiving states would be required to mandate that all health care providers in the state determine the Body Mass Index of all their patients in the 2-to-18 age bracket and then report that information to the state government. The state government, in turn, would be required to report the information to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for analysis."

"The Healthy Choices Act–introduced by Rep. Ron Kind (D-Wis.), a member of the House Ways and Means Committee….amends the Public Health Services Act by stating that health care providers must record the Body Mass Index of all children ages 2 through 18. “The provision relates to all children in states that accept grants under the bill,” a spokesperson for Rep. Kind told '….BMI will be taken at times when the child makes an otherwise scheduled doctor’s visit.' "

The government is no longer pro-choice, as in citizens no longer have the right to their own life. All things considered, I think the citizens should be monitoring and controlling the government BMI, which is in essence the Bloated Marxist Index.

Pledge of Allegiance With Equal Injustice for All

As a patriot, I hold a certain reverence and respect for our Founding Fathers, as well as an immeasurable appreciation for the nation they created and provided for us. The Founding Fathers were very wise men and I consider it a privilege to be a US citizen. Those on the left, however, sadly consider being a US citizen to be a burden, and forever pursue their quest to destroy America.

The problem lies in that the leftists do not grasp the depths of the accomplishments of the Founders, nor do they understand the basis of the motivation for their actions.

The Founders of this great nation took into consideration not only their experiences of living under a tyrannical king, but also human nature itself with all it's flaws, as some are prone to influence and power, and may not always act on their conscience and moral grounds. The end result created a government with checks and balances, to preserve freedom and curtail the flaws of man from gaining control.

The leftists think that by government control of man in a tyrannical regime, that they can control the flaws of human nature. Yet, it is the very control itself that is the flaw. When people are free, they will correct the injustices and maintain a balance in the nation.

When considering justice, the Framers had a deep understanding of the injustices in tyranny, and the people's inability to correct it. It is easy to understand, when reading their quotes, and pondering the points that they make.
"The opinion which gives to the judges the right to decide what laws are constitutional and what not ... would make the judiciary a despotic branch. ... The germ of dissolution of our federal government is ... the federal Judiciary ... working like gravity by night and by day, gaining a little today and a little tomorrow, and advancing its noiseless step like a thief, over the field of jurisdiction, until all shall be usurped. ... They are construing our constitution from a co-ordination of a general and special government to a general and supreme one alone." --Thomas Jefferson

"Judges ... should be always men of learning and experience in the laws, of exemplary morals, great patience, calmness, coolness, and attention. Their minds should not be distracted with jarring interests; they should not be dependent upon any man, or body of men." --John Adams

When we think of Obama's nomination of Kagan for the Supreme Court, this is exactly what the Framers intended to prevent in the founding of this nation.

There are so many articles on Kagan, but I am providing some interesting tidbits from a few sources.
"It's noteworthy that after Kagan's ill-fated Clinton court nomination, Chicago Law wouldn't let her come back to its faculty, gleaning that she'd just be waiting for her next plum political job.

Even the New York Times, which would undoubtedly be happy with a Justice Kagan, is grousing that "whether by ambitious design or by habit of mind, Ms. Kagan has spent decades carefully husbanding her thoughts and shielding her philosophy from view."

Put it all together and this looks like an ambitious radical stealthily, and for many years, grooming herself for the pinnacle of judicial power. But is this nonjudge, with precious little trial experience even as a lawyer, even qualified?"
"President Obama’s nomination of Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court is irresponsible," said Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton. "Ms. Kagan is a liberal activist and political operative with no experience as a judge. A Supreme Court nominee ought to have significant practical experience as a lawyer or a judge—especially a nominee for the nation’s highest court."

Despite heavy condemnation from the right, most political pundits agree that it would be too difficult and costly for Republican senators to filibuster the nomination, as seven of them voted to confirm Kagan as solicitor general last year
Some in Congress are questioning Kagan’s lack of a published record that would offer insights into her judicial philosophy, but questions about her views are sure to come during the upcoming Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearings.

Fifty-six percent of voters believe it is fair for a U.S. senator to oppose an otherwise qualified court nominee because of disagreements over ideology or judicial philosophy.

Voters have consistently and overwhelmingly said in national surveys that justices should make their decisions based on what’s written in the U.S. Constitution and on legal precedents rather than on a sense of fairness and justice. But voters also tend to think Obama believes the court should rule on the basis of fairness and justice.

I also read some commentary on her thesis, in which she discusses socialism as beneficial and bashes capitalism.
"A coherent socialist movement is nowhere to be found in the United States to speak of a golden past than of a golden future, of capitalism's glories than of socialism's greatness."

Huh? Socialism's greatness???

If that doesn't shock you, she also has made commentary about limiting free speech, and resides in the school of the Constitution being defective and flawed, and believes in judicial activism. No wonder why she is Obama's friend. "Constitutional rights are a product of constitutional text as interpreted by the courts and understood by the nation's citizenry and its elected representatives."

In summary, she is not objective, has NO experience, and will not make judgements based upon the law itself, but rather legislate from the bench. Frankly, I don't understand how a person can be nominated to be a judge in the highest court in the land, without ever have worked as a judge, ever. Why don't we just pick someone out of the phone book?

The nonobjective activist judge with an agenda is not qualified to reside on the bench to maintain the scales of justice. Instead, if we look at the true character of such a nominee, the scales of justice will be tipped, as they pledge their allegiance to the equal injustice for all.

The U.N. Overrules Arizona

Unless things have changed since I woke up this morning, to my knowledge, the USA is still a sovereign nation. This is all still true despite the Obama administration's agenda of "change" by transforming America and adjoining us to the marxist new world order.

When I read the US Constitution, it starts with "we the people of the United States" and proceeds to describe all the rights and privileges of a US citizen. I don't recall any reference to rights granted to citizens of the world, or even to nations of the world.

Even the 10th amendment maintains the sovereignty of the states from the federal government.

So why would any world "leaders" believe that they have a say in the matter?

Surprisingly, there are apparently "experts" at the U.N. who believe that their opinion bears some relevance and influence on the new laws in Arizona.
"Arizona's new law on illegal immigration could violate international standards that are binding in the United States, six U.N. human rights experts said Tuesday."

Exactly who are these so-called "experts"? And why do they think they can "bind" the USA into anything?

If these "experts" had any clue whatsoever, they would realize that the U.N. has no legal jurisdiction over the USA, never mind Arizona. Either these people are completely delusional or there must have been some party over at the U.N., from which they all need to sober up and join the rest of us in reality.

The irony of all of this is that the U.N. should really be an abbreviation for the Useless Nations instead of the United Nations. The decisions and actions or lack thereof on world dictators is pathetic. One of these tyrants could be torturing and killing their own people, and the U.N. might send them a letter. Although it is said that the pen is mightier than the sword, clearly this does not apply to someone who wants to put you feet first through a shredder for disagreeing with them.

And yet, the U.N. is issuing statements on Arizona, and it's right to make laws that are best for it's citizens.

The USA is a nation of laws. But the U.N. seems to favor those that have a complete disregard for civilized societies, terrorists, and criminals, rather than peaceful nations of law abiding citizens.

While everyone is entitled to their opinion, however distorted, the U.N. cannot breach the sovereignty of the USA or the individual states. I wonder if the U.N. will attempt to take any action anyway. Someone should advise the governor of Arizona that she should check her mail for a letter.

Government Pay Cuts?

It is probably safe to say that the average American holds the opinion that they deserve the salary they earn, if not more. Obama's recent claim that someone has "earned enough" is not only anti-American, but it sends chills down my spine. (This is not to be confused with the liberalism disease symptom of "tingle up my leg"). The government seems to hold a different opinion, as to what Americans are "entitled" to earn, but of course, this does not apply to themselves.

The marxist porker, Obama the Superzero, has been making some more outrageous statements from the Ratcave. Apparently, he has targeted the US military as a money saving victim.
"For example, the military brass claims that an average sergeant in the Army with four years of service and one dependent would receive $52,589 in annual compensation, according to the paper. This figure includes basic pay, housing, and subsistence allowances, as well as tax benefits.

Meanwhile, a U.S. postal letter carrier, with no supervisory or hazardous duty, makes approximately $80,000 a year when all benefits are factored in."

While those who risk their lives for our nation and for freedom are grossly underpaid for their responsibilities, the random person who wanders your neighborhood and puts a letter in your mailbox who is at risk for a paper cut and random dog bite is paid significantly more, and Obama is fine with this. How despicable.

How should we really save any money?

God forbid that Congress should make any sacrifices. They are not only grossly overpaid for their job, but with such poor performance, they should be earning minimum wage which would be more in line with their competence level.
"Members of Congress make an average of $169,300 a year, with Congressional leaders making slightly more. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Cailf., makes $217,400, while the majority and minority leaders in the House and Senate each make $188,100.

The raise will increase the average salary to about $174,000, up 2.8 percent."

If you aren't mad already, please take a look at this document, listing government salaries from the last 200 years. Look at the significant increases since the socialist FDR came onto the scene.

Now Congress might argue that they ARE making sacrifices since they did not take any salary increases for 2010.

I know, your heart bleeds that Congress is suffering so much.

I wonder what the 26 million unemployed people think about that, or the now 40 million on food stamps.

Since Obama thinks someone has "earned enough" and believes in the redistribution of wealth, I'd like to offer a solution in line with his philosophy.
- We pay Congress the initial salary of $6 per diem, just as in 1789. They get no benefits, perks, free airline tickets or meals, and no lifetime pension. If the people like the job they do, we the people vote them a year end bonus in each election, based upon job performance.
- We swap the military salaries with the postal carrier salaries.
- All government employees from all agencies receive an annual review at election time, with any raises being voted by we the people.
- The money we save on Congress and all government employees should go to pay off the deficit.

Let's see how well they would perform now.

Fuzzy Math on Unemployment - April 2010

The BLS is reporting a slight increase in unemployment for April, bringing it up to 9.9%. This includes an increase in employment in the federal government, which is more people being supported by the taxpayer. The federal government tally also includes 66,000 for temporary census workers.

Here is the official BLS report for April 2010.

So while they have reported the "official" total of unemployed to be 15.3 million, they excluded an additional 11.6 million people as follows:
- 9.2 million working part time (resulting from hours being cut or those unable to find a full-time job)
- 2.4 million marginally attached to the labor force (not counted as unemployed discouraged workers, not currently looking for work because they believe no jobs are available for them)

This puts the actual unemployment at 26.9 million or 22%. This is an increase from last month by .5 million people. Shadowstats provides a chart of the real unemployment, including those the government has omitted.

Chart of U.S. Unemployment

An increase in overall unemployment by .5 million is even worse when you consider what it might be without the federal government expanding at the taxpayer's expense. While there may be less people unemployed because there are more employed by the government, this does not account for the hidden cost to the economy.

Those in the private sector produce a product or service which can generate wealth. Those in the government sector not only produce nothing, they drain taxpayers of funds that could be utilized to hire employees, invest capital, and to generate wealth.

For all of these additional government employees that taxpayers are supporting, we should be able to claim them as dependents. Actually, when I think about it, I'd like to tell the leeches to go out and get a real job as a productive member of society.

State of Dis-Union

If we look back in history, in the industrial revolution, there were long hours and unsafe working conditions for laborers. Laborers formed unions to prevent the exploitation by employers. At the time, a reasonable work day and safer working conditions were obtained and the unions served their purpose.

In today's age, we have OSHA along with many other regulatory bodies intruding upon businesses. With their existence, the original purpose of unions no longer exists.

So why do we have them? What is the purpose of today's unions?

The unions of yesteryear have morphed into nothing more than legal organized mobs. If a film maker were making another Godfather movie, they could cast Andy Stern of the SEIU as the head of the family.

The unions' business model now includes activities such as utilizing methods of extortion, duress, and intimidation from both the employer and the employee, to obtain more money and power, and creating a barrier between the employer and the employees.

What is even worse than this, is the bribery of politicians to obtain their ultimate goal of having control of all employees in the nation, such as in a communist state. SEIU bought off Obama with campaign contributions, so that they could achieve their goal. While Obama pretends he is fighting for the working man, he is really paying the working man lip service, as he is in the pockets of the unions. REDSTATE has a great article on this.
"Obama wants us to believe he is waging a war against the very people he means to put in charge of the American working class, and the very people that bought and paid for his election victory, his Executive Orders that lay the groundwork for a Union takeover of the private-sector workforce, and his recess appointment of Craig Becker to the NLRB. Before you call me crazy, think EFCA, High Road contracting, and the frightening words of his newly recess-appointed NLRB member: “workers should not be able to choose against having a union as their monopoly-bargaining agent.”

Re-read that last sentence, “workers should not be able to choose against having a union as their monopoly-bargaining agent” and let it really sink in. If it doesn't send chills up your spine, then you aren't paying attention. Workers will not have freedom and rights to choose, and will become victims of a dictatorship.

How is this in the employee's best interest, which is what the unions pretend to serve?

There is nothing about today's unions that is uniting any one's interests but their own. In fact, is divisive. If the unions continue to gain power as is clear from Obama's agenda, we will become the state of dis-union all working in a dictatorship with no freedom at all.

National Insecurity

As a kid, I remember watching the Mister Rogers Neighborhood show. In every episode, Mr. Rogers took a trip on the trolley to the Neighborhood of Make-Believe. I think that Obama, Holder, and Napolitano have bought a one-way ticket, boarded the trolley to the land of make believe, and never left. These cast of characters have gone out of their way to pretend that we don't have any terrorists as enemies of state, despite the overwhelming evidence before us.

We all know that the underwear bomber at Christmas wasn't enough to rattle them and get their own panties in a twist as it should have. But now when someone tries to blow up Times Square in NYC, their first reaction was denial that it was a terrorist act. While it may surprise those in the land of make-believe, the rest of America is not surprised to learn that investigators have now determined that it was an attempted terrorist act committed by a Pakistan native with foreign connections.

Perhaps if homeland security spent more time actually focused on our real enemies, instead of labeling tea party patriots as terrorists, this Pakistani man would have been denied admission to the US in the first place, or at least been placed on the terrorist watch list.

Whether it is a threat of individual terrorist acts, or a massive one, they still live in the land of make-believe. Even amidst the likelihood of a nuclear Iran, these cast of characters still refuse to call a terrorist a terrorist. Instead, Holder focuses more on demonizing the good guys like the CIA who are trying to protect us.

"Woolsey calls the administration’s effort to come up with euphemisms to describe terrorists and terrorism “debilitating from the point of view of our being able to understand what’s going on.”

Woolsey has come up a few euphemisms of his own: “For example, for terrorist, they might try anger-management-challenged candidate for therapy. When you have to not call something by its right name, you undercut your ability to deal with it.

Woolsey labels as “outrageous” Attorney General Eric Holder Jr.’s decision to revisit whether former CIA officers should be prosecuted for engaging in enhanced interrogation of terrorists."

The only people who should be prosecuted here are the terrorists. Furthermore, the CIA should be taking risks in interrogations, since the lives of Americans are at stake. In this case, clearly the benefits outweigh the risks. And those captured who are a danger to us should be detained indefinitely, instead of being released to commit more terrorist acts, as the statistics have proven to be true.

It is the government's job to protect the people, and provide for our national security. Yet instead, every action taken by this cast of characters is the exact opposite, making us less secure with each passing day.

Even when they are forced to admit it as in the DOJ news conference, they use verbiage that indicates their real position is not as it should be, be it this incident or the others, and that their views are not that of the American people.
"Holder and Napolitano’s comments leave several lingering questions about this administration’s idea of what constitutes a successful terrorist attack."

"Despite the Obama administration repeatedly characterizing Fort Hood as a “tragedy,” the majority of Americans polled did see the event as a terrorist attack and 64% believed the attack could and should have been averted by federal authorities or military officials."

Perhaps the land of make-believe has clouded their vision. They need to re-enter the real world and understand that their job descriptions are to ensure our national security, not our national insecurity.
